Ex-heart patients’ listening service in Coventry
I agree let those lawmakers suffer like we do …. January 24, at The last time I made a mistake and went to a dentist because I had a tooth that had broken off into the gum line and I never knew that I could not see a dentist. I was turned into the DEA for doctor shopping for goijng to a dentist to get the tooth cut out with about 12 stitches which I did not have done so I still have a very bad and terribly painful tooth because I am on 2 pain meds a day from a pain management doctor.
It seems as if the DEA cannot distinguish a difference between acute and chronic so you are blasted for trying to get immediate help also and charged with doctor shopping.

Doctors, dentists, optometrists, and other healthcare providers are required under HIPAA to provide each patient with a Notice of Privacy Practices at the time of their first visit. Patients must provide a signature, agreeing that they have received a copy of the HIPAA privacy practices.
A signature is only required once, no matter how many times you visit the provider. All information, whether in the past, present, or future, is safeguarded.

Pictured Bronwen Ashton, who was a service user and is now a volunteer, helping others going through a difficult time with their babies. The Duchess of Cambridge has spoken out about the pressures facing new mums Almost eight years ago, Bronwen found herself suffering from such serious mental health difficulties that in the weeks following the birth of her second child she feared she would die. Now recovered, she is giving back to the specialist mental health unit in Leeds which transformed her life, by sharing her experiences with recently-admitted new mums on the ward where she had to stay for three months.
But the darkest days of her illness where she believed she was close to death are fortunately long behind her — thanks both to the support of her husband and family and the tireless work of the staff at the Perinatal Mental Health Service run by the Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust from The Mount building close to the Leeds General Infirmary. But I kept thinking there was something wrong with her. I thought I had done something really wrong. They were talking to my husband and said she needs to come into hospital.
The set-up at Leeds with mother and baby rooms allowed her daughter to stay with her, while her husband took time off work to look after their young son, with the pair of them paying daily visits.

Terminally ill man loses challenge against assisted dying law Nicki Morgan, one of the palliative carers, told the BBC: And very strangely we do see that that happens.

After House refuses to run tests at Tritter’s request and insults him, Tritter trips House. House agrees to the tests and tells Tritter he has to check his temperature to rule out infection. House proceeds to use a rectal thermometer, and his supposed reason for using the rectal thermometer over a normal mouth thermometer is Tritter’s chewing of nicotine gum, since oral readings can be affected by food and drink.
House then leaves the room on a pretense with the thermometer still inserted in Tritter’s rectum; House intentionally never returns and Tritter endures the rectal thermometer for two hours. Afterwards, Tritter demands an apology from House for deliberately leaving the thermometer in him. House refuses, apparently spurred on by the patient’s attitude, which is as bad as House’s.
